This is a true Australian Federation apple believed to be the daughter of Rokewood and Granny Smith both of which are famous old Australian varieties. It is a large apple, maturing July or even later and keeps extremely well. Brilliant red purple skin, longish conical fruit with excellent flavour. Tree is quite vigorous and should produce excellent lateral growth on the step-over. This variety originated in the apple growing areas of Western Australia and is suitable for low-chill conditions.
Important note on size. All my stepovers didnt make sufficient growth, and as such are sold as "small". In the paddock most got up to mid thigh (when in leaf!) and should do just fine. They've been discounted accordingly.
As we grow it on other rootstocks, be sure that you want it as a Step-over.
